Australia, the “lucky country”, shrugs off Covid and is set to boom

Australia, the “lucky country”, shrugs off Covid and is set to boom

They call Australia the “lucky country” and it is easy to see why.

It was hit hard by Covid early but a combination of swift government action, geographic isolation – and luck – means life is almost back to normal and the economy is booming.

No masks in shops, restaurants and bars full, offices buzzing with people: it is all very different to what most of the rest of the world is experiencing.

After a big contraction in the first wave of Covid, the Australian economy grew faster than at any time since 1976 in the pre-Christmas period.

Zac Radbone, Moore Global head of Digital Media, recently returned to visit his home town of Adelaide after a year locked down in London.

He made a video diary of his experiences and says: “The two cities might be 10,000 miles apart on a map but they might as well be on different planets right now.”

Loved your video Zac and Grant and yes we sure are the lucky ones here down under. Good that you are back home in Oz. I am in the Biloela Office just over the Great Divide from Gladstone in Qld and one hour from our Monto Office. Stay safe:)

Welcome home Zac. Thank you for putting this video together and having both you and Grant remind us how fortunate we are. We have had strong leadership and the Government to make the necessary hard decisions to keep us safe and to preserve our financial stability and economy. We do live in the lucky country and we should never forget that. Thanks again.
